Rhys Williams (Blackpool)
Williams picked up a shin injury over the international break that is expected to keep him sidelined until November.
Sepp van den Berg (Schalke)
Van den Berg suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury at the beginning of the second half of Schalke’s clash with Augsburg, which they went on to lose 3-2. The injury could rule him out for some time, with some fearing the worst.
“Sepp van den Berg is on the way to the hospital with a suspected ankle injury. We keep our fingers crossed for you, Sepp!”, Schalke tweeted from their official Twitter account.
